For singer Carnie Wilson, maintaining a healthy weight and body image has been a lifelong struggle. She says that this year’s resolutions include getting and staying healthy – not just for her sake, but for her daughters Lola, 6, and Luciana, 2, as well.
“I’ve had so much stress in the last year, so it’s really a struggle,” Carnie, 43, tells FOX News. “I’m definitely up in weight.”
Saying that she’s “looking forward to getting an exercise routine again” in 2012, Carnie admits that staying in shape only got harder once she overcame her addictions to drugs and alcohol. The Wilson Phillips star battled substance abuse following her gastric bypass surgery in 1999.
“I can’t smoke a joint. I can’t have a glass of wine because I want 10 joints and 10 glasses of wine,” she reveals. “That’s my obsessive compulsive and addictive behavior. I’ve really struggled since I’ve become sober.”
But the mom-of-two is determined to set a good example for her girls: “Lola knows I struggle with it. I see Lola loving sugar like all the other children, but I also see her pay a little more attention. Like when there’s a birthday party, I see her being the first in line to get the cake. I see me in her.”
